Art Chadwick

Arthur V. Chadwick (Click for full C.V.)

Ph.D. University of Miami 1969

Sedimentology and Geology of Basins

General Interests

Art Chadwick's interests include basinal and suprabasinal sedimentologic trends, including the analysis of paleocurrents and other directional structures. He is also involved in research on the basal Cambrian depositional systems and deep water processes in a number of areas, including work on the Tapeats Sandstone in the Grand Canyon region. His paleocurrent work takes him to far-flung areas of the globe in search of new sources of data.

 

Current Research

Dr. Chadwick is presently engaged in directing the excavation of one of the largest dinosaur sites in the world. He is engaged in taphonomic research at that site and on a Miocene project in Peru involving fossil Balaenoptera. He has carried out and published sedimentological research on the Tapeats Sandstone in Grand Canyon and on the fossil forests in Yellowstone National Park, and is continuing a lifelong study of the global circulation patterns from the geologic record
